Spring Photography Tips and Tricks

Spring is right around the corner. With daylight slowly starting to last longer again, you’ll be looking forward to what spring brings if you’re a keen photographer. It’s the best season for capturing new beginnings. Flowers will be in full bloom, nature brings new life, and the weather is perfect for spending time outside exploring.
Below are some spring photography tips and tricks to get the most out of your photos.

Polarising filters

Spring brings colour and lots of it, from clear blue skies to the green of the trees and all the colours from a field of flowers. A polarising filter attached to the front of your lens is an inexpensive way to prevent any unwanted glare or reflections and creates contrast and saturation.

White balance

Before you start shooting, check your white balance. Different types of light have different characteristics. Colours can look more blue, green or orange than in reality. So be sure to check your white balance so that the colours you capture are well balanced.

Depth of field

Experiment and have fun playing around with your camera and its settings so that you can find your photography style. Experimenting with your depth of field on manual or aperture priority mode can give you a new view of your subjects. Remember, the wider the aperture, the more focus you’ll have in your foreground. The narrower your aperture will bring everything in view into focus.
